GOP Lawmaker Didn't Pay His Taxes

The Buffalo News reports that Rep. Tom Reed (R-NY) has been late 38 times paying his property taxes since 2005.

National Journal: "Having paid $3,486.51 in late fees, Reed is now on the right side of the law, but as a member of the committee that actually writes tax law it's more than embarrassing. At least he has plenty of company. For it turns out that several members of Congress aren't so into writing that check to the government."

The other offending members: John Runyan (R-NJ), Ann McLane Kuster (D-NH), Jim Renacci (R-OH), Vern Buchanan (R-FL), and Steve Southerland (R-FL).
